Alleluia Nativitas
A Medieval Christmas and New Year

Travelling from hauntingly spiritual music written a thousand years ago via spectacular pieces from the 13th and 14th centuries, the Orlando Consort arrives at serene and beautiful works from the early years of the Renaissance. This programme presents inventive, sophisticated and irresistible Christmas music for both courtly and church settings with music by Perotin, Dufay, Clemens non Papa and anon!
